Pray For Corbin

We just got home from Corbin's 4 month check up....I am in pieces. I just had the biggest breakdown of my life on the kitchen floor... Monday Corbin is scheduled for a CT of his brain. I can't go into detail at the moment for fear of another meltdown and mommies don't have the luxury of having meltdowns. He has a "bulge" on the front part of his brain. My baby boy has what wrong with his BRAIN?!?!? I am absolutely panicked and overwhelmingly concerned...I just want my baby to be ok. Please keep him in your prayers...and if you know me in "real life" please don't ask me about it, I just want to pretend like everything is ok.

UDATE 02/01/09: I just read the following on the aafp.org website and I shouldn't have...I don't think I am going to sleep much tonight... On the "orders" the doctor gave us to give to the hospital in the morning under "reason for exam" she wrote "bulging fontenelle" and when I searhed that this is what came up:

"The diagnosis of an abnormal fontanel requires an understanding of the wide variation of normal. At birth, an infant has six fontanels. The anterior fontanel is the largest and most important for clinical evaluation. The average size of the anterior fontanel is 2.1 cm, and the median time of closure is 13.8 months. The most common causes of a large anterior fontanel or delayed fontanel closure are achondroplasia, hypothyroidism, Down syndrome, increased intracranial pressure, and rickets. A bulging anterior fontanel can be a result of increased intracranial pressure or intracranial and extracranial tumors, and a sunken fontanel usually is a sign of dehydration. A physical examination helps the physician determine which imaging modality, such as plain films, ultrasonography, computed tomographic scan, or magnetic resonance imaging, to use for diagnosis."

Jessica, please know that your sweet Corbin is in my prayers. And you are too! If there is one thing that I've learned from bloggin' is that when you put a need out there, sisters just ban together and pray. Please know that he is on the top of my prayer chain. =Mandi

Jessica.....
Please do not fall apart. Let God shine through. He is in control!
I have a favorite verse that I tend to cling to when I'm feeling a little out of control!

I'll share it with you.
2 Tim. 1:7 "For God has NOT given me a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline."

Satan wants to freak you out. Don't fall for it. Fear does not come from God, EVER! Be brave, sister! Pray and believe! God can do anything...you have the power to ask for it too.

I will certainly pray for you all and Corbin. Trust Him.
